Reason I'm asking is I owned the 100-400mm 4.0-6.3 for two years and I found it just barely long enough for some of what I do and as soon as the sun touched the horizon or dropped half-way below the surrounding trees in the ball park, not fast enough. f/5.6 on the long end would have helped a lot.

Welllll, the 150-400 with its built-in 1.2x TC will be a native 500mm lens. An expensive path to achieve that gaudy reach, but a legit one (presuming typical Pro tele quality).

The 300 Pro transforms to 420 and 600mm with the two MCs. It's a little slow, however, at 600/8. Dual-IS helps its usefulness when handholding.

A native 500/5.6 would sell like hotcakes. Oly and Panny both have the ability to make such a beast, and Sigma could jump in any old time as far as I'm concerned.

Cheers,

Rick
